There is a new audio show in the MD, DC & N. VA area this June 11-13.

Polk Audio will be present and showing old and new within the Pinneburg Room, 2nd Floor.

Info: http://www.capitalaudiofest.com/
Welcome to the 2010 Capital Audiofest!

The date for this unique event is set for June 11-13, 2010 at the historic Glenview Mansion located on the grounds of the Rockville Civic Center, 5 minutes from downtown Rockville, MD, 10 miles north of Washington DC and 45 minutes from Baltimore, MD. The Glenview Mansion is a charming historic structure constructed in the 19th century and is surrounded by lovely parkland and well groomed grounds. The structure is well constructed with stone, brick, plaster, and old growth hardwoods and has high ceilings and wooden floors throughout. These qualities are near perfect for the reproduction of music and is already a favorite venue for local musical performances. We believe it to be an ideal setting to hold the first ever hi-fi audio show in the Washington DC Capital area. For more information on the room configurations, please view the on-line floor plan.

We plan to make this a casual fun-filled event for audiophiles, music lovers, collectors, hobbyists, DIYers, dealers and manufacturers and will have table space, booths and rooms available for use. Families will also enjoy the beautiful setting and great food. The event is expected to attract those interested in high quality vacuum tube and transistor audio equipment, analog and digital playback sources, buying and selling of LP records and CDs, and manufacturers of audio accessories. The event will be catered by quality food and beverage vendors and plan to have live musical performances on one or two evenings as well as an indoor audio swap meet on Sunday AM. We hope to provide something of interest to all music lovers and look forward to seeing you at this exciting event!

For any questions please contact [email protected] or Gary Gill at 703-839-5684.

    I know Gary from DejaVu Audio and he bought a big pair of Magnepan from me a good while ago. He's a super nice guy and a real vintage audio veteran. The event looks to be top notch and you may just find your own dorokusai hosting a room...but that's just a rumor ;)

    Sounds like it'd be a great event for Polk to send some LSi and high-power gear to. Maybe round up the LSi setup from my gathering?

    No, he's just sending some stuff. I'm promoting him in the room since I have 3 pairs of his stands, two of which are custom Polk stands.
